Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and coach Mike McCarthy clashed a bit Sunday with cameras capturing an obvious disagreement during a 34-30 road loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Rodgers finished with a 64.5 quarterback rating, his lowest in two years as he tossed two interceptions.

What happened between Rodgers and McCarthy?

"Any time you get into a situation where there's changes in rhythm and personnel and play calls, it's frustrating," McCarthy told reporters. "I had called a play in a certain situation and he was frustrated by it. I feel good. One in every three weeks would be awesome.

"He's competitive, man. That's what I love about him. I didn't really think it was that big of a deal."

Rodgers' take?.

"We're both passionate about the game and competitive," Rodgers said. "We want to win very badly. I went over and talked to him after that, and we got on the same page. We needed to talk, we did and we moved on."

During the FOX telecast, former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman was asked if he had ever argued with Norv Turner.

"Not just with Norv, but with all of them who called plays at one time or another," Aikman said. "Sometimes even a head coach or two. It's all part of it. Unfortunately, or fortunately, however you want to look at, there's cameras that pick up everything. That's to be expected."
